Hip Miami Beach refuge with 1950s-inspired flourishes, an alfresco spa, and two sceney pools
Lady Gaga put this refurbished tower on the map when she snapped a photo sprawled along one of its candy-striped beach loungers in 2017. In many ways, that claim to fame, which is equal parts retro glam and millennial cool, is an apt metaphor for what this playful property (formerly a Thompson hotel) stands for. Part of the Hyatt’s eclectic Unbound Collection, the kitschy-chic sleep, replete with playful patterns and a sun-and-surf inspired color palette, pays homage to the city’s signature Art Deco roots—without fixating on them. Tropical upholstery and geometrically patterned carpets infuse guest rooms with instant warmth; the penthouse suite, which can sleep up to six guests, is splattered in crimsons and marigolds, with a separate living and dining area. Sample chef Richard Hales’s award-winning Nashville Hot Fried Chicken at the patio-clad Bird & Bone or guava and cheese pastelitos at neighboring Cafecito. Don’t want to leave your perch on the sand to nosh? There’s good news: the hotel’s private beach offers full food and beverage service.
In the Area
The Confidante is nestled along Mid-Beach, a relatively restrained corridor between Miami’s 24th and 44th streets. Your quiet surroundings mean area attractions are all short drives away. For a look at one of the city’s most stylish pockets, the Design District, chock full of art galleries and high-end shopping, take a free walking tour (offered on the third Wednesday of every month). The hotel is also a 20-minute drive from the up-and-coming Wynwood Walls project, an ambitious endeavor that converted old area warehouses into canvases for international street artists. For a second helping of culture, make your way to Little Havana (about a 25-minute drive away) for authentic Cuban eats at mainstays like El Pub and Versailles.
How to Get There
Nice pool and beach access, clean and comfortable rooms, good food, and the hospitality is top notch. All staff were very friendly, responsive, and attentive, especially Chris C. The views are amazing and the location is perfect for nights out and transport up and down the beach and into Miami.
On my second day here I got an opportunity to meet Daniel. What an impressive young man. We talked investing as he adjusted my umbrella and made sure every single detail about my experience was perfect. His sincerity and kindness in fully engaging with his customers was truly memorable. Then I thankfully got to experience Megan’s service again today. Literally the most positive human being ever! Finally ChrisCaldo served me drinks and covered extra sections as one of his coworkers had an emergency and had to depart. Chris’ teamwork and complete calm under pressure was inspiring. Then we move in to the pool area and get Diana serving us. Wow! Super fun, efficient, kind and hard working. Watching the staff at the Confidante work together as a team has made me a RAVING fan of this place!!! I’m going to bring my family and friends back over and over.
Thank you to Natalee, Megan, Mishelle, Diana, Shayla, Chriscaldo, and Daniel. This vacation was the best time I have EVER HAD!!!!!!
I booked this hotel b/c of the Hyatt ownership. I thought with the Hyatt umbrella, it would be a nice hotel. I don't even know where to begin. Upon arrival I was told my room location was subpar and to pay extra per night for an ocean view upgrade. I said okay although, pretty skeptical with an instant "upcharge". The deposit per night was not what was quoted. I had to wait an hour and a half for my room to be ready. The so called bar area happy hour turned into a nightmare when I got ill and, the server kindly up charged me for beverages instead of charging the happy hr. rate. You're asked every 5 mins do you want something else. All in an attempt to run your bill up. Speaking of bill! Upon check out and returning home I see about 10 misc. fee transactions posted on my credit card acct by the hotel. Long story short, the hotel stated Oh these are from snacks from the mini bar. I didn't touch a THING in the mini bar! BEWARE def. shady and I am still dealing with the misc. charges with my credit card co. I would rate lower if I could. Very bad experience!
